So, does someone want to buy me one of these? Times are tough in the alittle household, so I think a fundraiser is in order. Rambo, will you do the honours?

For sure, what I meant by it's own flat file. I for instance would have no where to store said flat file box besides straight leaning against a wall in my house. Don't have storage space under the bed, too big for under the couches, and too big for my storage boxes which are bigger than most real flat files.

you would have to think if it would have been paypal or cc would have sold out a bunch quicker. must have saved him a good chunk of change doing the bank wire way.

yup.
pay via paypal, use credit card,file dispute at the 20 day mark if suspicious. don't deal with noobs. don't trade with noobs. request feedback ahead of time. there are lots of good people 'round here.

they have gradually gone up. its not like he just popped on the scene yesterday and started selling prints for $3,500. sponge bob was around 1k(i think) paper smile was 1.4 , the ups and downs were 2.4 and this at 3.5 over the course of the last 4 years or so. KAWS has been doing his thing for well over a decade and the upper art world is recognizing him now. i think the price is spot on.
